Obama: Grandma is a typical white person

Oh brother ... this guy just should lay low for a while. In explaining his Grandma comment, he told a radio station today, his Grandma was not a racist ... just a typical white person. To be fair, I've included the campaign trying the spin the comment in the Fox News Jim Angle report. You decide.

Here's the original bite from the speech:

BTW ... Geraldine Ferraro has responded to the part of the speech where Obama compared the Rev Wright's comments to what she has to say: "To equate what I said with what this racist bigot has said from the pulpit is unbelievable," Ferraro told the paper."

As a refresher, Ferraro said two weeks ago now, Obama would not be where he is now if he were not black, which, by the way I have already called silly and stupid in a blog post. Wright said the Government infected blacks with HIV, the Jews were responsible for 9/11, the Government allowed Pearl Harbor to happen, and America is really USKKKA. Here's the passage from Obama's race speech. Ferraro has a legitimate gripe here.
